I doubt very much that any of you wait for around the 20th of the month with bated breath for my posts, but just thought I’d post a quickie out for now apologising for the lack of a lengthy informative story, as it usually is just in case you do. Regular readers may realise why.
The main reason for this is the fact that I have just undertaken a 60 mile ride (62 miles, if truth be told) on the Tour of Pembrokeshire this year and am currently recovering. Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration, I had a blooming good massage to cut down on aches and pains. I just haven’t had the opportunity to use the PC to raid the archives of late is all. But I am a bit tired. However, it was all in aid of a good cause, on a lovely day and in gorgeous scenery; below is an image of me full of pith and vinegar about to depart taken by my new biographical photographer (aka my Dad)….
Before anyone asks, images of me afterwards are not pretty so won’t be posted! As I said though, this was all in a good cause, namely MIND Pembrokeshire, Haverfordwest who myself and my partner managed to raise nearly £300 for and in return, I wore that rather snazzy top to publicise their excellent 24/7 service. MIND Pembrokeshire work tirelessly for a better life for everyone with direct or indirect experience of mental health problems and long may it continue.
Anyhow, thanks for dropping by, even though it was just a short one. Normal service to resume in the near future when I can reliably walk/sit for a prolonged period!
Maybe you have or maybe you haven’t noticed that I didn’t really post in March. This was a for a few reasons, but the main ones being that I am now (seeing the days are longer) getting out on my bike a little more.
Well, actually, it’s an unofficial training schedule for the Tour of Pembrokeshire on my little silver hybrid bike. This has involved riding to work on a few occasions…thankfully most of it is pavement or cycle path and I have all the kit, so people are less likely to kill me. I think.
Next week, the two wheels need a spruce up and a service too, so I will need to ride to the good folks at Enterprise, Neyland for the old once over. I recommend them if you are local to the area I live in and like riding or even want to buy a bike.
Weather at the moment. Hmm. Weird. One minute it’s blazing sun, the next it’s 40 mph winds and rain that makes it difficult to stand! Anyway, Spring is here and the daffodils are out with the primroses on our bank so, even though it’s cold outside, it’s going to get warmer. Promise. To finish though and thank you for dropping by, a sight that will hopefully become more prevalent with the increase in temperature in the coming months….
See you soon with more bright and Spring themed pictures. Until then.
